Editor’s Note: Bishop Michael Yeung Ming-cheung, 72, was installed as Hong Kong’s bishop in August 2017. In Rome for an ad limina visit, he asked the Pope to accept his resignation before the customary age of 75 so that he can devote himself to ministry to the poor. Commenting on Vatican negotiations with China, the prelate said, “We want to pray for [the Pope], for the Church in China, and for all those who have sacrificed their lives for the faith in China, so that we too can be ready to sacrifice our lives for the Gospel.”
